Hello, my name is Niki and I'm a Printmaker in Porthtowan, Cornwall. I love linocutting and particularly the reduction method which is the result of layering colours one on top of the other, this results in a vibrant colourful print. This is a two day workshop as this is a relatively complicated process. Day one will be spent cutting lino and practising on a small piece. Once you understand the method you will then design your final piece. Day two will be spent printing your design as a small limited edition. This is an over 18s workshop. I keep the class size small so that everyone has plenty of support, attention and space. This will be a relaxed session but packed full of information. You will learn how to design a reduction print, transfer it to a block and use the correct tools to cut. Then how to mix ink, roll it and how to get the right consistency and layers for a clean print. You will learn how to register the block so that the layers are placed correctly. I'll show you how to create a design in several colours. How to break this down into layers and transfer it to a piece of lino. How to register your block How to re-cut each layer and create your limited edition. Day one will be a little more formal than my usual workshops. I will teach you as a class to create a small reduction print; how the layers work on top of each other, how to register the print and how to clean between each layer. Day two will be your day to print your own design as a limited edition. I will be there to make you a cuppa and troubleshoot if necessary. If you have any issues which you feel will need extra support on the day please let me know beforehand so that I can bring appropriate resources. You will leave with your limited edition of prints and hopefully a smile on your face!
